Shape: Corona Extra / Hermosos No.4

Appearance:

The cigar is looking very good, and it feels good in hand as well. The Picadores is sporting a redesigned band, with a modern style and bright white, red and gold colors. It is actually inspired from the old design of the Picadores band in use until the seventies. This band is now used on all Por Larranaga cigars since 2014. The construction of the cigar is excellent, it is well packed and firm when squeezed between the fingers, with no soft or hard spots. The triple-cap is very pretty, flat and with almost invisible seams. The wrapper itself is beautiful as well, of dark-brown color and with a slight oily sheen on the surface/.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Once the Picadores has been lit, the first draw give some rich flavors of tobacco, some spiciness too (cloves again and nutmeg). On the finish, some woody/herbal notes. Big billows of smoke are released at each draw. The burn is good and doesn’t require attention.

Burn/ Draw

Once the Picadores has been lit, the first draw give some rich flavors of tobacco, some spiciness too (cloves again and nutmeg). On the finish, some woody/herbal notes. Big billows of smoke are released at each draw. The burn is good and doesn’t require attention.

Initial third:

In the first third, the Picadores offers some smooth and mellow flavors. There are is some subtle sweetness, of burnt sugar, almost caramel-like, reminiscent of the typical Por Larranaga sweetness. There is also just a slight note of bitterness from herbal tones, which are signs of the cigar’s young age. The body of the cigar is just under a medium level. It is better to smoke this cigar slowly in order to enjoy its smooth flavors. The ahs falls off while entering the second third. The ash has a nice light grey color.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the flavor profile evolves a little bit, with the herbal flavors a bit more dominant, with some powerful and creamy black tea notes. There are also some deep flavors of leather, but without any trace of ammonia until here. The strength of the cigar is now at a medium body.

Final third:

In the final third, the flavors of coffee, of smoked cedar wood also join the mix. The caramel notes recede in the background, leaving more room for the leather and the coffee in the foreground. In the final draws, there is just a bit of green taste, nothing to worry about though, since it is a fresh cigar.

In summary, the Picadores is a nice sweet and mellow young smoke. It should reach its full potential within the next 4 to 6 years. So grab a box while you still can.

Smoking time:

1 Hour 30 Minutes

Let these sit in my humidor for a couple months before lighting one up. Wonderful Cuban flavor immediately. Evolving flavors throughout without ever becoming harsh.
